Kenny Chesney Visits With Sandy Hook Families

One of the shooting victims was a big fan of the country star.

Kenny Chesney visited with some families of victims of the Sandy Hook school shootings at his show this past weekend (March 23) at a Connecticut casino.

The visit happened after Kenny found out one of the little girls who was killed was a huge fan of his, local radio station Country 92.5 reported.

The girl's family told CNN's Anderson Cooper that they wrote the words "Kenny Chesney, No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem" in black marker on her white casket. Anderson in turn called Kenny, who contacted the family and invited them—and several other families—out to see him at the Mohegan Sun casino.

Once there, the familes gave Kenny a rubber bracelet with two hearts and the words "Sandy Hook Strong" on it.
